      Looks like the grille will actually feature the Volvo logo, unlike the initial image that's been floating around (I assume it was intentionally edited out). I'm kind of sad that it's only a concept though. It'd be awesome if it was an actual model that was on its way but it definitely bodes well for the future.

      Bonus that we only need to wait a few days to see it in its entirety.

      That definitely IS a bonus. That way we have to speculate for only a few days instead of going through weeks/months of excruciating debate

      One photo got missed there, but honestly I'm not a fan of it:



      Looks too... BMWish to me. But maybe it's just the angle.

      That said, it's nice to see that Volvo seems to be designing in a sportier direction, even if it is only a concept, and who knows what's under the hood.

      Perhaps, I can kind of see that since the only thing that's missing is that the grill be split in two and made concave instead of convex like BMWs. But I think the grill is supposed to recall the general shape of another famous Volvo Coupe (Ahem, P1800) since the P1800 also had a concave grill, and the grill bars are in the shape of that from the 1990's 940/960/S90 series cars seeing as the thickness is right.

      First bunch of pictures were interesting, but I couldn't make much of them and I was a little worried. My worries are gone, this thing is hot. Very classy and sporty. I don't find it looks BMW-ish as much as it looks Audi-ish. Either way, it looks cool and will hopefully have the interior and power to match.

      The next question is will this be a C60 or C90? C60 and it's likely my next car.

      It looks like the new Ford Taurus in a 2 door coupe version if you ask me I bet theyre planning to drop one of those new 4cyl super+turbo charged engines in it too.



      Still, not as badass as the WRX concept. Although I do see some similarities. Namely the front bumper and taillights. http://jalopnik.com/the-subaru-wrx-c...eyeb-461441647

      You can kinda see where the Volvo logo will go in this image.

      Was that a Saab Video?

      Was he once a saab designer? I feel like I just watched a Saab advertisement - down to the narrator! I can't wait!!!

      Volvo needs a world class transmission of this coupe - that's all I'll say at the moment.

      This is an article describing the car before anyone had any idea what it was. It IS a Volvo though, look at the headlight and look at the headlight in the reveal provided by Volvo, the cars are one and the same.

      I wouldn't be too sure. The new Chinese owners have been itching for an aggressive coupe since day one, perhaps they finally have the resources/designers/plants to build one...

      Overall I hope that is a Volvo although I'm not liking the side profile of the back. If it is, I like how for concepts they do the right thing, no ugly hood seam across the front, the wheel and wheel wells look designed for each other, sporty and with minimal gaps. Of course, what this REALLY would look like if they were to ever actually produce it is what truly matters.

      That subaru is really nice too.

      Second video from Volvo now uploaded

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hHOKCnndeT0

      The concept C clearly has references to the P1800 given the pics, badge and some of the images in the new teaser.

      I would think this was a concept of a new larger SPA C90 although info also suggests there's a C60 and C90 coming.

      That has class, a great improvement over the somewhat lairy, low rent styling of the latest cars, where frankly Kia and others do better..... hopefully it will have the correct instruments too.

      Maybe the S80's replacement......

      I too believe this is a fake. Look at the drivers side door. The tail light is similar to concept universe and completely different from the C style tail lights being showcased on the other reveal pictures.

      Well...yea. That's why I said the grille will actually feature the Volvo logo. The original leaked image didn't have a logo and you can clearly see where it will be in the newer images.

      "Iron cross"? It's not a German car, you know. "Iron mark" perhaps?

      I wouldn't refer to worldcarfans.com for any reliable information. It IS the new Volvo Concept C Coupe, not a Citroën. Worldcarfans are buffoons.
